Sunday School is for boys and girls aged from 3 to 8, and meets every Sunday during the school term. The children participate in the first part of the service along with the rest of the church, then leave just before the sermon for their own age/stage-appropriate teaching and activities.
Sunday School operates on a rolling curriculum, using Mustard Seeds material. We aim to provide the children with a solid foundation of biblical teaching, with a strong emphasis on the Gospel and God’s plan of salvation throughout.
There is some up-front teaching, with games, crafts, songs and other activities that are designed to reinforce the main point of the lesson. Sunday School is run by a dedicated team of teaching leaders and helpers. We aim for continuity from week to week by having the supporting leader on one week delivering the lesson on the following week. Leaders do 2 weeks back-to-back, then have several weeks off.
We are convinced that a child’s parents/carers (especially Fathers) should take the lead role in bringing their children up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4). To that end, we try to support the parents/carers by communication well in advance what children will be learning each week. That way, the teaching delivered at Sunday School can be reinforced at home. We do however recognise that this often is not possible, as we regularly have children in Sunday School whose parents/carers are not Christians or attending the church.
